The Tupolev was hijacked by nine people, some of whom burst into the flight deck and opened fire. The first officer made sharp manoeuvres to prevent the hijackers from taking aim. In so doing the aircraft was subjected to G loads of +3.15/-0.6, which exceeded the design limit of the Tu-134. The hijackers were forced out of the flight deck and the aircraft returned to Tbilisi where security forces stormed the aircraft. Three crew, two passengers and two hijackers were killed and the aircraft received 63 bullet holes but was written off on account of permanent structural deformations caused by excessive G loads.
